Toast Coetzer

Musician, poet, photographer and journalist

Toast Coetzer says the thing that makes his mother most proud is that he works for the travel magazines Go! and Weg. But his fans will know him as the front man of cult music outfit Buckfever Underground, whose four albums have been lauded by critics. But Coetzer's printed word is spreading fast. He is the co-editor of Ons Klyntji, an erratic zine, with Erns Grundling and Drikus Barnard. And he's one of South Africa's finest poets, published in several collections, including the recently released Groot Verseboek. His novella Naweek � completed during his creative writing master's at the University of Cape Town � will be published in August this year and Key to Cape Town, a guide to the mother city, which he collaborated with photographer Sam Reinders, was recently released. � Lloyd Gedye
